In light of the Council Tax reform I am just wondering how many Council's adopted the Empty Homes Premium at 150%? We at Cheshire West and Chester have and needless to say we have received a fair number of complaints. I have recently had one empty home owner who advised that he had been phoning other Local Authorities to see if they charged 150% and we were the exception!
Even if you are not charging the full 150% I would be interested to know what Council Tax you do charge for long term empty properties.
